College Sendoff Gifts

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Time to get out the box of tissues…your high school student is now a college student heading off to school in just a few weeks!  Pretty soon you’ll feel like you know Target, Walmart and Bed, Bath & Beyond like the back of your hand as you scour each store for the perfect dorm room essentials and school supplies that your college student will need for the fall semester.  And let’s face it, those old boring dorm rooms haven’t improved that much from when you and I went to school…a bed, a dresser and a desk is about all your student will start with, and we know that personalizing their room is a very important part of college life as a way to spread their individual style, as well as spread their school spirit for their brand new alma mater.

Send your son or daughter off to college with the essentials they’ll need for the new school year, and a few gift items from home to help them remember you when they feel homesick and feel spirited and a part of their new institution.

If your son or daughter is attending a college or university far away from home, help decorate their desk with a complete set of collegiate stationery so that they can write home to you about all of their experiences while away at school.  We offer stationery collections with collegiate note cards, collegiate calling cards and return address labels and stickers.  Each stationery item comes complete with the college or university’s school colors, and a licensed mascot or university logo.

If writing home to Mom &  Dad isn’t your student’s thing, consider one of our collegiate notepads as a fun desk accessory and a great gift for the busy student trying to keep organized.  Jot notes in class, leave a phone message for a roommate or doodle while bored and be spirited while you do it!  Or, you can also decorate your student’s dorm room or apartment with our collection of ceramic hand-painted collegiate pottery by Magnolia Lane.  Purchase a mug with the university’s logo to go with your child’s morning coffee routine, a picture frame to hold a photo of new friends or a serving platter, stadium platter, bowl or plate set  for the entertaining student.

Our licensed collegiate collection features products from schools all over our nation including LSU, Duke, Oklahoma University, NC State, UNC, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Texas Christian, Florida State, Auburn University, Notre Dame, University of Georgia and the University of Michigan – just to name a few!  Check out some of our awesome personalized collegiate gift items below and help your child go back to school in style AND in school spirit!
